Tenure Track Changes

Transfers between tracks (tenure track, non-tenure track) may be permitted per the UTHSC Faculty Handbook. Sections 4.9.2 and 5.2 provide guidance to faculty members, chairs, and deans as to such a request.

To process requests for transfers from tenure track to non-tenure track, please use the provided template, located here.

Tenure Calculation Aid

Typically, a faculty member on tenure track serves a probationary period prior to being considered for tenure (the exception is tenure upon initial appointment). In keeping with the UT Board of Trustees policy, the probationary period at UTHSC is six years. The faculty member will apply for tenure during the sixth year, and if tenure is not granted, the faculty member will be permitted to serve a seventh year as a terminal year.

Review the current tenure calculation chart for date calculations for:

  • Required six year probationary period for tenure
  • Requirements for early consideration for tenure before the sixth year of the probationary period
